“…The labels used in one study were limited to the date of discharge and acknowledgment that the physician had reviewed six aspects of the patient's care: antibiotics, fluid balance, medications, venous thromboembolism prophylaxis, blood tests, and patient observations (Krishnamohan et al, 2019). Another study included these components and others on its labels as well as an area to document any outstanding tests (Ng et al, 2018). A third study, on the other hand, focused solely on documenting the care plan and requirements for discharge (Alamri et al, 2016).…”

“…Checklists of essential pre-operative tasks have been used to improve the rate of completion of requested jobs (18) and their usage in surgical ward rounds has also been found to improve the quality of documentation (19). It has also been established that checklists can have a significant role in changing cultural practice and improving safety (20) with work by the Safe Surgery Saves Lives Study Group finding that a checklist was associated with concomitant reductions in both rates of death and complications in patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery (21) Stickers have been used as part of a checklist, for documentation of ward rounds and demonstrated to be a simple and effective way of evidencing good practice against recommended standards (22). A quality improvement program in NHS Lanarkshire where the use of ward round stickers was audited found them to be a simple and effective safeguard to ensure basic aspects of care were not missed while maintaining standards (23).…”
